MISSION Portland Parks & Recreation is dedicated to providing a play-based, child-centered educational preschool program for ages 3–5 years old. Play is an important avenue for learning. It is our goal to honor where each child is in their development and to make goals to foster the individual child's growth and development. It is our belief that ALL children want to be successful; we are committed to providing guidance that supports each child and classroom.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE Portland Parks & Recreation recognizes that some residents of the City of Portland may require financial assistance to participate in our programming. We believe all preschool age children should have access to educational opportunities in their community. If the cost of Portland Parks Preschool is out of your reach, we encourage you to speak to our staff about scholarship opportunities that may align the price to your family's budget.

Sprout Academy O PR

UT ACADE

M Y

The Sprout Academy is a school-year long educational preschool program at Southwest Community Center. Our teaching philosophy is children learn through play, infused with hands-on lessons of what it means to be green and how we can each do our part. By being role-models & leading by example, Sprout instructors teach students the importance of reducing, reusing, re-purposing, and recycling as well as simple concepts of sustainability. Students cumulatively build on the lessons they have learned throughout the year and are well-prepared for their next adventure whether it be moving up into Pre-K, or heading off to Kindergarten!

S

HLCC FPCC

What is a Green Preschool? In spring 2010, the Sprout Academy became certified Eco-Healthy by the Oregon Environmental Council. In addition to our green-focused curriculum, the physical environment where our students learn is a healthy setting for their growing minds and bodies. Sprout teachers, the program manager, and SWCC’s building director worked together to bring the classroom setting up to the OEC’s standards for an Eco-Healthy Child Care. From the paint on the walls to the cleaning products we use to the educational materials on the shelves, Sprout Academy is a safe place for your child to learn and play.
